  1. This is AWESOME!!! Oh wow, I really need to try this soon! To make your blog or Sinterklaas poems extra personal is ideal!
    Thanks for the tip! ?

    I think I have had my own font for years, even at school, this is because I once occupied myself with calligraphy for a period and I also used that in my school work, I wrote with a fountain pen and when I started doing this, I cut slowly. I also take off the tips of my fountain pens, hahahaha, but you can also do it with a roller pen or ballpoint pen, although the streamers of the g are a little less graceful 😉

    I scanned it and saved it, but how do I now install it in my fonts?
    I'm stuck 🙁

    Cool! That's quite a handy tool. I'm going to save it!

  5. Really a lot of fun! I think it would be fun to make, I didn't know how so that's a really great tip!

    A long time ago I saw it on Pinterest and intended to try it soon, but I just forgot haha. Now that I see it on you, I'm immediately looking forward to it again, so I'll give it a try soon. You have beautiful handwriting!

    I had heard about this before, but my handwriting is really too sloppy for this, haha :p
    I think your second attempt is a nice font! But I'm also curious about what types of fonts you will make 🙂

    Oh, this is great! I've always wondered how this is done, now I know! Thanks! Something I will definitely try 😉

  9. What a cool article! Your own font, that's fantastic. 🙂 I think yours is really beautiful!

  10. What a great idea to make your own font! I'm not good at it, but if I were I would definitely do this.

  11. This is so much fun! Wow. I didn't even know it was possible, the process itself doesn't seem that difficult to me, so I definitely want/must try this! Drink for the nice article!

  12. I think this is very neat! I would like to do this with my daughter and I think she can do it better than me.

  13. Yvonne says:

    Nice to try, it doesn't seem easy to me. I like your letters, the thin point looks best.

  14. Yep, this is so much fun!! I want that too! But I'm so afraid that no one will be able to read it anymore... Because writing has never been my best profession. 😉

  15. Bente says:

    Haha you call this messy? I actually think it looks really nice!

    Great to make your own font 🙂

  16. Fun to do, I also think the thin point looks better!

    Wat a fun idea!
    I have wanted to learn to make fonts myself for a long time and I think this is the simple way and for my own use, but it is very nice that you share it! I'm definitely going to try this sometime!

    You have made a nice and useful discovery. A nice font can always come in handy. 🙂

    What a really nice idea! As soon as I have a scanner and printer again, I will get started on this immediately. By the way, I also like the thicker capital letters, for a good headline above an article or something!

  20. Rita says:

    Awesome!! Will definitely try it!?

  21. zazazoobeauty says:

  22. Connie says:

    Very nice result and also fun to do.

  23. Nicole says:
